This apartment was perfect for our short stay in Paris. It was very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The location is fantastic, just 10 minutes walk from Notre Dame, where you can also catch one of the Hop-On/Hop-off bus tours (highly recommend doing one of these). The apartment is hidden away from the bustling city street, which has yummy Patisserie shops and a small supermarket that has everything you need. Souvenir shops and cafes are just around the back of the Pompidou Centre. The owners were great, answering all of my queries by phone and email promptly. I was nervous about booking this from Australia and having never used HomeAway before, but everything went smoothly. Brush up on your French because the concierge (a lovely, helpful lady) does not speak any English. At least learn introductions and how to say your departure day and times in French. It was great to experience life like a local, rather than staying in a Hotel. Easy access to the internet was much appreciated, as was the washing machine (take some pegs with you). I would definitely recommend this apartment.
